Self Healing by Amir Elzeni

Morning burst
into my heart,
my eyes
find light,

unlike birth
you wake up
carrying yesterday,

the soul
gets lonely,

and I,


Amir Elzeni, USA

Amir Elzeni was born in Cairo, Egypt in 1966. Moved to America at age nine. Painfully shy and instinctively driven. He plays guitar a little. His music is the Blues (thanks to Buddy Guy), Jazz and Flamenco. He owned, operated and was the chef at a blues bar. Where he had the pleasure of booking many of the great /legendary blues artists, up and coming young cats and he is honored to say they became his friends and extended family. He was also lucky to meet a girl that he fell in love with in such a magical way.
